Sporty's Gives Away A Skycatcher In Latest Sweepstakes

Pilot From Yuma, AZ Goes Home With Cessna LSA

Just 10 days after taking delivery of its first Cessna 162 Skycatcher LSA on May 5, Sporty's Pilot Shop watched the airplane fly away with it's new owner, who won it as part of Sporty's annual airplane sweepstakes.

The winner of the new Skycatcher was Alan Horowitch from Yuma, AZ. The drawing came Saturday at Sporty's annual fly-in at its headquarters outside Cincinnati, Ohio. Sporty's, billed as the world's largest pilot shop, is an authorized Cessna aircraft dealer.

"Sporty's annual airplane give-away does a lot to promote general aviation and the fun of flying - exactly why we designed the Skycatcher," said Roger Whyte, Cessna senior vice president, Sales and Marketing. "The Skycatcher is going to be a catalyst for increased pilot starts. It will significantly change the economics of ownership and operation for flight schools, aircraft renters and aircraft owners, and will benefit the entire general aviation community. We wish Alan many happy hours with our newest piston aircraft."

The Model 162 Skycatcher is a two-place, single-engine piston, high-wing aircraft in the Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) category, defined in the United States as an aircraft with a gross weight under 1,320 pounds and with a top speed of no more than 120 knots. LSAs are built to ASTM International standards.
